To the I. W. C. girl of to-day, as well as to the girls
of yesterday and to-morrow, the successful endowment
campaign means much. Her loyalty and enthusiasm
were more deeply stirred as she watched the progress
of the campaign and the "final day of triumph" to her
seemed inevitable, because — well, it just had to be. It
came and she is happy.
The retention of rank as a standard college af-
fected each student vitally. A diploma from a school
that was not standardized would not carry much
weight with strangers, whom one wanted to impress,
or with beseiged school boards. Just think, then, how
many valuable would-be teachers would have wearied
away their days trying to find positions, if the last
thousand dollars had not been given. Then, too, it
would have been a terrible disgrace, if one, upon enter-
ing another school either for under- or post-graduate
work, had had to have been told: "Illinois Woman's
College credits are no longer accepted here; you will
have to take examinations. It was surely too bad about
the endowment, for that college had been making a big
name for herself." But there were enough faithful
friends and everyone is happy.
The girl of to-day loves to think of the wonderful
future of the college — a future made gloriously near
by the gift of endowment. She can vividly imagine a
library growing as rapidly as a thirteen year old boy,
extensive additions to equipment of laboratories, and
bigger opportunities for the development of aesthetic
13l)£ College Greetings
taste. Scarcely further away in the future looms up
the handsome new gym and its younger sister, a Stud-
ent Building, for of course friends will be glad to give
these to a college insured by such an endowment.
To the girl of to-day, victory in this campaign
means rejoicing for what the college has already given
her, for what it is now prepared to give her, and for
what it is to give the girl of to-morrow. She delights
both in visions come true and in new ones to be made
to come true. Helen McGhee, '16.
AS THE THERMOMETER WENT UP
About two weeks before the Chirstmas vacation
there seemed to be a sudden burst of excitement
throughout the halls, which first took definite form on
Thursday morning when a mass meeting was held in
Music Hall. The first few minutes of chapel time were
taken up with a stunt, given by the girls who had been
in school during the Endowment Campaign of 1913.
An idea was given of how, at that time, all entered into
the work and made a few pennies in every way possible.
The scene was laid in two of the girls' room ; they were
both busy rewriting themes for "endowment." One
by one, girls came in asking to wash hair, waists, win-
dows, manicure nails, black shoes, sweep and dust and
do most everything else that could be thought of. Ev-
eryone was busy for endowment.
As soon as the stunt was ended, girls in the audi-
ence were full of enthusiasm. One of the Juniors was
first to speak. She told of the plan the class had in
X5l)e College (Greetings
mind, and which they were very willing to have copied.
The plan was, to have a box in the office, into which
everyone in the class could put a Christmas gift for the
college ; as much as she could sacrifice from her allow-
ance. This box then, was to be presented to Dr. Harker
on Christmas morning. So the thirty minutes for
chapel quickly fled, and to say the least, the time was
much too short.
By noon, the usual greeting "Hello" had changed
to, "What are you going to do for endowment ?" In a
day, the halls, bulletin boards and elevator had changed
their natural appearance. Posters were hung every-
where, advertising the different lines of work to be
done for little money. The posters read, "Sleep late and
be comfortable. I will close your windows and turn on
the heat, at any time, for only 5 cents." "Let me darn
your stockings." Art students offered their painted
china and sketches at low prices, one Senior even of-
fered to sell her senior privileges.
During this time, Dr. Harker was away, but every
day a telegram came instructing us to raise the Endow-
ment thermometer a little ! When Dr. Harker returned,
the day before the vacation, he wore a significant smile.
No cuts were taken from that morning chapel; there
was a feeling that some disclosure would be made. We
were not kept waiting long. One by one our class presi-
dents were called to the front and allowed to raise the
indicator on the thermometer. Joyous and breathless,
we watched the red mercury record the thousands and
pause finally, past the half-way mark, at $52,000 !
Then we left for home. We shall never forget the
two weeks of wondering, with only rumors to ease us.
13l)£ College (Brectings
Finally, however, some were appraised of the successful
close of the campaign through the article in the Chicago
papers, while others were left in suspense until the next
day, when the letter came, telling the good news of vic-
tory. Of course it is needless to say that we were over-
It was a glad returning to College and still happier
were we when we found all the songs composed and
printed for a celebration in Chapel. The town-girls had
been busy since the close of the campaign. Then dur-
ing chapel we were happily surprised by the announce-
ment of a half holiday. Johanna Onken, '17.
SIDELIGHTS ON THE CAMPAIGN
On Dec. 26th Bishop McDowell spoke at the Grace
church in appreciation of the Woman's College. He
complimented the members of the community upon
having such a school and said they were very fortunate
in having had Dr. Harker here as a force in the com-
munity for so many years. He reminded us that our
school, as a college, is young yet, but now it will grow
even more rapidly than it has in the last few years.
The whole United States aided and took an interest
in our campaign. Maine, New York, New Hampshire,
Pennsylvania, Alabama, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Michi-
gan, California, and many others sent contributions —
gifts came from north, east, south and west. Illinois,
too, proved herself proud of her Woman's College.
In round numbers there were six hundred subscrib-
ers in this last campaign. Just think of it! The gifts
ranged from one and two dollars up to thousands. Many
Z3l)e College (BrcteUncjs
subscriptions came in through the influence of the Ad-
vocates,, which published far and wide the need of the
College in hearty expressions of commendation.
In its annual meeting, the Church Board of Edu-
cation passed a resolution, especially urging the wor-
thiness of the campaign and declaring our college to
be of such importance outside of the State as well as
in Illinois, that all Methodism should respond to its
appeal. This resolution is the second of its kind ever
made for any college by the board and it had undeni-
No one was more enthusiastic than the town girls

M. L. T.— "Victory now is ours !" Well ?

M. L. T. — We'll put that in another one.
S. M. — Let's put in something about our College

M. T. — Let's get to work. I must go to League.
(Two songs finished.)
M. L. T. — Stop after church and we'll write some
more. Everybody keep your wits working till then.

A JANUARY TALK
The first of Miss Motherhead's talks, after vaca-
tion was very appropriate and fitting, especially to
those who were inclined to be homesick. She began
by saying that the words,
"No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member —
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds,
apply not so much to that month as to January
and February, in the average college. It seems
that a sort of lethargy settles over students at
this time of the year, giving them the blues and a gen-
eral down-hearted feeling.
She advised that we keep our bodies healthful by
taking daily walks, and by proper foods. If the physi-
cal condition is poor, it is doubly hard to keep the mind
and heart cheerful. She suggested that we keep some-
thing bright, as a potted plant in our rooms to aid in
developing a happy atmosphere.
She also warned us not to worry but to keep doing
day by day. The whole talk was a challenge for a
higher self control and gave us a zest to lift the blue
cloud from January and February 1916.

It isn't every community that can have a circus in
mid-winter — and brought to it's very door at that.
But I. W. C. doesn't consider itself an ordinary every-
day community. It was quite as a matter of course,
we wish it understood, and entirely without arrogance,
that we sent a summons in zero weather to "Ringling
Sisters," ordering them to bundle up their animals and
come on along. One might suppose that the housing
question would have proven a difficulty. But not at all.
I. W. C. is noted for its hospitality and democracy, and
the flea was simply sent to room with the ringmaster,
the donkey with the clown, and the bears with the
leader of the band.
But it is not only in the matter of fellowship that
we are the van-guard in our era. In the realm of art,
we are Futurists. (Cubists also, hence the unanimous
approval of Ruth Mendenhall as clown). And what
could have been a more satisfactory exponent of our
new art than the "Ringling Sisters" band ? Such har-
mony, such resonance of tone and above all— such var-
iety ! Rarely has it been our privilege to hear so musi-
cal a hat tree (or to see so expert a performer upon it
as Miss Mildred Scott). Is it not the very essence of
modernism to extract beauty from the most sordid
materials? Fritz Kreissler himself could not have
wafted us any higher in the directions of the welkin
than did Miss Catherine Madden, with her "violin de la
clothes basket, "or Miss Kitty Bunting with her "cello
de la washboiler." The brilliant performance of Miss
Marie Towle upon the stovepipe, a recent importation,
resulted in an actual embodiment of musical essence.

At the culmination of a series of intricate measures, a
sausage, that symbol of ideality, made its appearance
at the mouth of the instrument.
A word must also be said for the exquisite handl-
ing of the "hose aix la funnel" by Miss Margaret Coul-
tas and of the "Racquet Tennis" by Miss Mary Fowler,
both recently of the Metropolitan Company. In places
their interpretation was so artistic as to be considered
by some undeniably artesian.
The new Italian conductor, Signior Goldsmith Mar-
garici, held the audience enthralled by the magnetism
of her features, the superbness of her bearing and the
hauteur of her moustache.
Louise Reed was rarely beautiful in her part as
Terpsichore. We especially admired the nonchalanse of
her make-up. Her teeth had an easy carelessness of ar-
rangement, assumed successfully only by the true es-
Mabel Farieferro, on her majestic bay, pranced
across the stage in a manner almost suggestive of the
famous equestrian artist, Olive Scott. She was a fairy,
a butterfly, (and though we scorn eulogy) a puffball!
Her foot on the tight rope met with almost equal ap-
proval. For, as she crossed the perilous chasm, the
sanguinary audience hoped for a moment her "feet"
would be no longer on the tight rope.
Nor was the thrill lessened by the spectacular ap-
pearance of Madame McCloud, the world renowned
cyclist, who looped the loop and threatened the foot-
lights in a manner upsetting to the neurosthenic mem-
bers of the audience.
Z3l)e (College (Steeling*
The minstrels, comprised of the celebrated sex-
tette, the Misses Sconce, Woods and Gist and Messrs.
Harrison, Wilkinson and Long, made a homely appeal
by singing the American National hymns : "Great Big
Silvery Moon" and "I've got a Castle on the River Nile."
They also contributed local color by exchanging a few
pleasantries about the faculty.
Though we fail to see the inherent connection be-
tween "Ringling Sisters" and the Athletic Association,
we understand that there exists some base compact by
which the latter organization is to receive not only the
credit for but the proceeds from the entire perform-
ance. And certainly the appearance (tho not exactly
voluntary) of Miss Robinson at the last curtain call,
seemed to give credence to this report.

From the Freshman Theme Basket
"I Can Easier Teach Twenty— "
A very noticeable fact occurs every day in our nat-
ural conversation. We very often are guilty of using
words which we know are not in good form. Daily are
we reminded of the errors but, try as we may, to im-
prove, the words do pop out. So it did with Mary, when
one day she was trying to improve the family in gen-
"Mother", she said, "have you ever noticed that
not a single one in our family ever says 'yes 9 ? Papa
says 'Yah', Florence says 'U-huh' and Bobby says 'Yip'
—You just notice to-night!"
Just then Bobby bounced into the room, his cheeks
red from exercise. When asked if he'd had a good time,
he answered the usual "Yip, Sis, you just oughta been
Florence, in the other room, was heard to say,
"U-huh, that is nice."
When Mr. Black returned from his office his wife
noticed the tired look. When he was asked if it had
been a heavy day and he said "Yah, but then — "
Mrs. Black then turned to Mary with an odd smile
and said, "Yes, Mary, what you said this afternoon
seems to be true enough and I think it's time we re-
formed, don't you ?"
Mary looked up and said, "Yep— I do."

The Kind of a Teacher A Freshman Likes
The average student likes, first of all, a teacher
who is human. Of course there are some unnatural
wretches who think that if a teacher appreciates an
enormous knowledge of the subject,, and rewards un-
tiring and health-destroying study with high grades,
he is a good teacher. However this is seldom the case.
A teacher in a college should exact sufficient work to
command the self respect of his students ; but by this
I do not mean an unreasonable amount. He himself,
should be reserved, not childish, well-prepared, not a
"bluffer," charitable about work which must be made
up, not an ogre, and above all things should have a
sympathy and a personality which will win the confi-
dence of the class. The ideal teacher excels in all of
these points. The instructor who is reasonable about
the work, and enters with an understanding into the
social activities of college life, is bound to be well liked.
The Kind of A Senior A Freshman Likes
How often Freshman are heard to say "Just be-
cause she's a Senior, she wants to show her authority,"
and how disagreeable it is to have such Seniors about
The Senior that a strange little Freshie likes is one
who tells her things that every Freshman must learn in
order to preserve her grace, in a simple, big-sisterly
fashion. A Senior who is not too wrapped up in her
own important affairs to run in to see the Freshman

occasionaly or at least to smile at her, is the one who
wins the love of a new girl.
A few days ago, a Freshman said, "Oh, if I could
be like that Senior, I would be happy. I always feel so
comfortable in her company for she thinks of others
more than of herself. I have never seen her without
her encouraging smile and how I love her for it, for it
always makes me want to do my best, and try to be as
happy as she is, in doing it." — Mabel Weis.

loosened its hold a little, and we face a new semester.
With the opening of February we close a period stren-
uous yet withal victorious. A new era presents itself.
Spurred by the impetus of the victories just completed,
enlightened by some of the failures, we turn our faces
toward this last stretch of the road with no hesitation.
There is something remarkably exhilarating in the vic-
torious attitude that makes real difficulties shrink and
mock troubles melt away. This is the time for the
bracing of muscles, for the lifting of sails, for the mak-

"to brave another cruise."
